The Motorola Moto g(100) is expected to be the global variant of the Motorola Edge S and the OPPO Reno 5 Pro+ 5G Bosch seems to be a special model of the existing OPPO Reno 5 Pro+ 5G. The Vivo X60 5G, meanwhile, is likely the global variant of the Vivo X60 that launched in China, and it’s set to launch outside of China on March 22nd. The Realme 8 Pro is expected to launch soon in India, according to Realme India’s CEO Madhav Sheth.

The Samsung Galaxy A52 4G and A72 4G will likely be announced next week at Samsung’s second Unpacked of 2021, alongside the Galaxy A52 5G and Galaxy A72 5G. Samsung’s Galaxy A82 5G, meanwhile, is rumored to be its second phone with a quantum random number generation chip, according to ETNews.

Google’s leak doesn’t reveal much else about these devices. But we’re expecting the next few months to be busy for smartphone releases, so expect many of them (if not all) to hit the market relatively soon.
